Today I gave a tour at the Wildflower Center and it was my chance to see some of the changes that have been made since I was last there in the fall. As I guided my group through the archway into the theme garden area, I let out a gasp. The Wildflower Center has joined the tank brigade.
Not just one tank but multiple tanks welded together and at different levels. Absolutely wonderful. In the area that were once the sunburst gardens, with rays of damianita and yellow hesperaloe, now boast the latest in tank construction.
New plantings. Oh, what happened to that gorgeous damianita. (Julie told me they potted it up and some did survive)
A third tank grouping in the center bed to agree with the theory that everything in the garden should be in odd numbers.
The gentleman who cut and welded these tanks together also made the square metal beds in one of the other theme gardens.
